Celebrating Women : The Shashi Baliga Memorial Session – Indefatigable

  • Thursday, 18th Nov
  • 9:00 pm - 9:45 pm IST

Feminism and environmentalism face huge challenges. What can we learn from the past while we move forward? A prolific writer talks about feminism’s unfinished tasks by reflecting on her decades-long experience in frontline activism and her struggles to find her artistic voice amid patriarchal violence. She also talks about how we might find inspiration for tackling the climate crisis from a little-known corner of George Orwell’s life: his love for the natural world.
